  • TV networks hold conference call to discuss Trump treatment (JournoList)

    Politico ^ | 11/23/15 | Hadas Gold
    Executives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss Donald Trump's campaign treatment of the press, but no immediate action is expected to come from the first call, sources familiar with the call told POLITICO. Another call is scheduled for this afternoon. Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call. It's unlikely a formal unified message will be sent to the Trump campaign unless all the networks agree on...
  • Colbert's 'Late Show' has become propaganda for Democrats

    So Stephen Colbert turns out to be just as much of an a-hole as "Stephen Colbert." Viewers have noticed. After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS's big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the show's ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC's Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before. The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned "Late...

    CBS correspondent Tracy Smith visited with Governor Sarah Palin at her home in Wasilla, Alaska. CBS’s Tracy Smith began her interview in a harsh fashion, asking Palin if she felt "like a loser" in the aftermath of the 2008 presidential election. The Governor didn’t hedge her response, "Well sure, you either win or you lose. It’s like dang, I wish I could have added more, contributed more positively. Maybe there was no chance that we were going to win anyway." Smith pressed her assault, "Do you feel like you’re to blame for the loss in 2008, cause people do blame...

    CBS News is changing its game plan for Saturday's Democratic primary debate in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks. The debate questions prepared earlier this week by CBS News political director John Dickerson and the network's congressional correspondent, Nancy Cordes, were designed to burrow deep into the candidates' views on domestic issues such as the Affordable Care Act and gun legislation. But once the news of the deadly coordinated killing rampage in Paris circulated late Friday afternoon, the moderators and producers started planning a greater emphasis on security in the debate queries. "This becomes the first segment," said Steve...

    Townhall.com ^ | 11/12/2015 | Victor Davis Hanson
    We live in a weary age of fable. The latest Hollywood mythology is entitled "Truth." But the film is actually a fictionalized story about how CBS News super-anchor Dan Rather and his "60 Minutes" producer supposedly were railroaded by corporate and right-wing interests into resigning. In reality, an internal investigation by CBS found that Rather and his "60 Minutes" team -- just weeks before the 2004 election -- had failed to properly vet documents of dubious authenticity asserting that a young George W. Bush had shirked his duty as a Texas Air National Guard pilot. The fabulist movie comes on...

    The professional punditry amid the Main Stream Media -on both sides of the political continuum- continue selling a narrative that Donald Trump is the easiest candidate for Hillary Clinton to beat. This pitch is based on their gaslighting claims and "opinion" and not reality. Poll after poll shows exactly the opposite. In addition to recent polling showing Donald Trump beating Hillary in NC, FL, SC, VA, MN, OH, TX and NV - Democrats, by a wide margin, fear Donald Trump more than any other Republican candidate.

    The United States spent a total of $5.9 billion to fund militaries around the world in 2014, according to the government’s 2015 Foreign Assistance report. Of that total, some 75%, or about $4.4 billion, was divided between Israel and Egypt. Clearly, the Middle East, at 64% of the pie, is the theme here, with Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon also found among the top 10 recipients. Closer to home, Colombia led the Americas with a relatively scant $29 million. Still, that’s enough to place it ninth overall on the list.

    NAPLES, Florida -- Ben Carson stood by his long-held belief about ancient pyramids in Egypt, that they were used to store grain, rather than to inter pharaohs. Asked about this Wednesday, Carson told CBS News, "It's still my belief, yes." The subject came up when Buzzfeed published a 1998 commencement speech delivered by Carson at Andrews University, a college founded by Seventh-day Adventists. "My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain," Carson said. "Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs' graves. But, you know, it would have to be something...

    During an appearance on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday, disgraced CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather did his best to excuse the criticism of CNBC’s Republican presidential debate and instead chose to blame Republicans for fueling such hatred towards the press. While Rather briefly admitted that CNBC"didn’t do it perfectly" the liberal journalist quickly blamed the GOP presidential candidates whose "constituency loves attacks on the press. So the moderators open themselves to some criticism." -Rather continued to dismiss the substance of the criticism against CNBC's biased debate and argued that it was just a made up issue by conservatives:

    The Elvira Show. CBS filmed a pilot for the Elvira show hot off the heels of the movie "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark" though the shows plot line has nothing to do with the movie. I was lucky enough to actually be at the taping of this pilot. The show starred Cassandra Peterson as Elvira and Katherine Helmond as Aunt Minerva. The writing is witty and chocked full of innuendoes and one liners that are so bad they are great! Too bad it was never picked up.

    CBS has refused to run advertising for Truth, the film starring Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford that revisits a painful episode in the network's past involving a discredited 2004 news story on former President George W. Bush's military service record. CBS has denounced the movie, which opens Friday, as a disservice to the public and journalists. Redford plays Dan Rather in Truth, with Blanchett as producer Mary Mapes. Together, they were behind a 60 Minutes II story that questioned Bush's Vietnam War-era commitment to service in the Texas Air National Guard. But CBS apologized for the story after documents used...

Fortuitously I discovered this presentation. While it is not the entire interview, it is well worth the watch for greater foxhole-morale value. Not only is the commentary quite funny, it also provides further evidence that there are many people who understand the situation and feel the same way.

So far, Mr. Rather has spent more than $2 million of his own money on the suit. And according to documents filed recently in court, he may be getting something for his money.

Obama defended the U.S. mission in countries like Syria and Iraq and said better results...

According to the piece, Fiorina, the wealthy former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, waited until January, a few months before announcing her 2016 presidential bid, to settle most of the more than 30 invoices outstanding from her last campaign - a total of about $500,000. She was quicker to reimburse herself the $1.3 million she lent the campaign. Fiorina, when asked about the article Monday, dismissed it. "You know I don't think the...

Now the WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIAs clandestine service in Europe who was working directly with Blumenthal as a member of Clintons spy network, was concurrently working as a consultant to CBS News and its venerable news program 60 Minutes. According to...

    CBS 60 Minutes ^ | 9/27/2015 | Video at link
    Donald Trump is firing salvo after salvo tonight on 60 Minutes. He's winning the arguments in a hostile, communist environment. The unhinged far-left interviewer, Scott Pelley, may have been born in Texas but he's not a true Texan because he rejected the Conservative Christian (and Jewish) values of the Lone Star state. Since Pelley (like Dan Rather, Walter KKKronkite and Egbert R. Murrow) is a limp-wristed metrosexual who hates America, it's great to see him getting TRUMPED! Go Trump go! Attack! Attack! Attack!

    "You Can't Handle the Truth!!!" ---A Few Good Men.Apparently former CBS producer Mary Mapes can't handle the truth at least according to her portrayal by actress Cate Blanchett in the newly released movie trailer for the upcoming fictional movie "Truth." I say fictional because Mapes in the film somehow maintains the truth of her story about George W. Bush getting favorable treatment in the Texas Air National Guard based on documents that were proven to be forgeries.

    Within the past few days, North Texas has seen a hoax bomb and now here's another hoax. It's clearly a false flag as was the case with sodomite Matthew Shepard in the late '90s. Police in Dallas are investigating a beating in the Oak Lawn area as a possible hate crime. I saw his face there was blood everywhere this was very bad, said witness Fransciso Garcia about the victim who was attacked with a baseball bat.

    The Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was a "crisis" and "terribly tragic," but not necessarily something that could have been foreseen, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "So, my view on this is, we have to learn things. And we are always learning. We learned after Beirut. We learned after Tanzania and Kenya. We have learned after Benghazi, but we're not going to be able to represent the United States working out of hermetically sealed tanks. We are going to have to be out in the world."...

    Hillary's standard shtick when asked about her private email server is to claim that it was "authorized" or "allowed" by the State Department. But Joe Scarborough has now contradicted her in stunning fashion. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough criticized John Dickerson for not challenging Hillary on the matter when interviewing her yesterday on Face the Nation. Said Scarborough: "CBS News knows if they have any sources at the State Department, CBS News knows that nobody at the State Department based on all of our sources at the State Department, nobody authorized it. She did it on her own." View the...

    Survivor: Cambodia Second Chance is the 31st season of Survivor (for those unfamiliar with the show, there are two seasons each year). It begins Wednesday, September 23, 2015 on CBS at 8/7c.I'm sorry for the late ping. I've been waiting - in vain - for CBS to finish updating the Survivor page. According to my DVR setting, the season premier is going to be a 90 minute episode. References: Official Survivor site at CBSWikipedia article There will be two teams of ten players each. The producers selected 32 previous cast members - 16 women and 16 men. The selection...

    National Review ^ | September 20, 2015
    A Gallup poll released last Friday found that a full 75 percent of Americans believe that corruption in government is widespread. Thats up by nine percentage points since 2009, when only 66 percent felt that way. So its no surprise that a populist revolt is in full swing. Bernie Sanders, a socialist who rails against government ties with Wall Street, is leading front-runner Hillary Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire. Three Republicans who have never held office Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson are way ahead of veteran GOP governors and senators in the race for the...
  • Leslie Moonves and CBS Staff Heard Dismissing Robert Redford's Dan Rather Movie as "Half-Truth"

    Before its acclaimed premiere at TIFF, 'Truth' about the scandal that ended the anchor's CBS News career was screened for a special viewer: CBS president and CEO Moonves, who was not impressed. Truth, director James Vanderbilt's drama about the "Memogate" scandal that ended Dan Rather's CBS News career, was touted as a world premiere at Toronto. Rather himself turned up at the event to praise the film's accuracy and its (very sympathetic) portrayal of him. CBS mostly comes across as the villain in Truth, with news chief Andy Heyward appearing to fire Rather (Robert Redford) and 60 Minutes...

    n September of 2016, Star Trek will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of its first episode. Launched back in 1966, the series and the property as a whole has since become a cultural institution and five spinoffs, dozens of movies and a successful reboot in 2009. However, since JJ Abrams turned Star Trek around and made into a broader appealing property, fans of the series have felt somewhat neglected. There hasn't been a Star Trek-related TV series since Enterprise - which was cancelled unceremoniously in 2005 after just four seasons. All previous spinoffs hit seven seasons. There's been constant rumblings and...

    Trump's teleprompter challenge trips up White House By Susan Crabtree 8/26/15 3:53 PM White House press secretary Josh Earnest got a little tongue-tied Wednesday after being asked what he thought of Donald Trump's suggestion that teleprompters ought to be outlawed. Veteran CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller asked him if such a uniform ban would affect the president "adversely." Since the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama has been known for his reliance on tele-prompters to deliver speeches and often rambles without one. "I don't have any well that's a tough one to respond to," Earnest admitted amid some...
